South Puget Sound Community College may not be a very well-known school, but I like knowing that the teachers at the college are recognized for the work they've done in their respective fields rather than derided for not teaching at a more 'established' institution. All three of my anthropology teachers were Ph.D holders - one in archaeology, one in linguistics, and one in biological anthropology (with an emphasis on Polynesian cultures) - and I know they're not the only faculty members to hold such an advanced degree.
During class on Thursday I also heard my Cultural Ecology professor comment on how it's very rare to see a cultural geography class offered at an American university, as the discipline isn't considered as important here as it is on the other side of the Atlantic. But wouldn't you know, I took a cultural geography class at my community college as well. Crazy.
